Dreaming of Batik Body Painting

One Saturday morning (11/May), my mind went wild in the artistic way because I dwelt in the Australian Body Art Carnivale 2013. So far,this annual event already dragged me for 3 years consecutively. The people, colours, shapes, and expressions always held me tight in so many ways included I cancelled few appointment just for the sake of this carnivale!

The 2013 theme was the “Best of Oz” but my mind went wildly(still)  into the theme of batik artwork in the body! Imagine the colour, history and story of batik centre around the body in its many ways from the top to the toe! Ha ha ha ….It might sound crazy 🙂 but never knows! Plus …. they say art has no boundaries 🙂

Ideas and inspirations flow and flow and flow without the limit. It’s the time for the artists to present their creativity, imagination, talent, and passion! How to interpret something Aussie in the body that can speak unspoken words but the beauty of Oz!

Began with the foundation colour in the body. Some artists picked the right brush to lay their right foundation colour to lift up the power of color and everything else into one masterpiece!

Walked around and stopped, then around again and stopped to feed my eyes and joy, then I saw EMU!! I stopped there and spent my times with Emu and its artist Anke Catesby. YES, I love Emu in her body! I love her artworks!!

Anke Catesby painted that gorgeous Emu so excellent!! I had the opportunity to talk with her then end up swapped the business card after that. When I write this blog, I found out in her web that she won People’s Choice Award and won 1st prize for Brush and Sponge category 🙂 Congratulations!!

YES, I am so glad 🙂 I had chosen her too!!

No matter what is the medium – body, canvas, fabric, stone, wood or anything you can think of, art has no boundaries and always beautiful in many ways!!
